"In God We Trust"
On March 26th. the 2001-2002 winter season came to an end. We sincerely
honour those that
in spite of the reports that were transmitted by the media,
decided to attend our Center, and realized for themselves how far the Dead Sea
is from all the unrest here in our beloved holy land.
During this season,
despite the small number of patients, some very interesting events took place.
On December 2001, we hosted a delegation from Belgium and Germany, for a
long weekend; including the President of the Belgium CF Association Dr. Jan Vanleevue
and Mrs. Alix Legros, and the Chairman of the CF Association of Berlin Brandenburg
Mr. Dirk Seifert.
Our gusts had the opportunity to join the group of patients
from Switzerland, to meet Prof. A. Tal and participate in all the activities that
took place during that weekend, including a trip to Massada guided by Amos, our
permanent guide, and our hiking exercise to Ein Bokek Wadi.

having fun at the wonderful Dead Sea. We are looking forwards to seeing next season,
patients from other countries as well.

I would be happy to meet you during the Congress
and share with you a further finding, which will be researched during the next
season, regarding an important mineral fInd in large quantities at the Dead Sea
area. This mineral causes, without doubt, a further improvement to the condition
of CF patients and their day to day standard of life.
Furthermore, we could
take this opportunity to plan a visit for the members of the association you head,
to our Center at the Dead Sea during the winter 2002-2003 season.
